On the twenty-second day of Christmas . . .

Welcome to Day Twenty-Two of's 3rd Annual 25 Days of Crafting Showcase!  Each and every day from December 1st through December 25th the 25+ Design Team members will be bringing you tons of holiday inspiration, daily freebies and weekly giveaways.

Our theme today is:  "Fast & Fabulous" -- last minute gift card holders, gifts. etc.  Here is my quick and easy gift-card card:

And here is the recipe:
  • White card stock cut to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and folded in half.
  • White card stock cut to 5" x 3 3/4" for the mat.
  • Ornament cut at 3 1/2" tall using Cricut's Joys of the Season cartridge.
  • Thin silver cord for the bow and hanger.
  • "Merry Christmas" banner printed using Microsoft Publisher and trimmed to fit.
  • Mat and banner are pop-dotted for dimension.
  • Two clear rhinestones. 
  • Greeting inside and slits cut to hold gift card.
Quick and easy!

Now I hope you'll head on over to and check out the adorable projects other Designer's have created.  And make sure to check back in with us each and every day through Christmas for tons of inspiration, freebies and weekly giveaways!
